“I didn’t have to become perfect because I’ve learned throughout my journey that perfection is the enemy of greatness. Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes others uncomfortable“.- Janelle Monáe

I might look a little ragged around the edges too. I am far from perfect. Maybe my marigolds are trying to teach me to accept myself as I am, to forsake fruitless comparisons to my former self, to live in today.
Maybe my marigolds are there to remind me of compassion and acceptance.
